@NeoShredder: Where did you get these 绸布 characters for Chobu from? These are not the characters used in the video. See for yourself. The video uses these characters: 鸟舞. They read niao wu - bird dance (WTF?!) - in Chinese (the first character here does not quite look like in the video tbh. That's because I cannot write traditional characters on my computer right now so I used simplified characters, but never mind. It is the same character.). Got no idea why they used Japanese (?) pronounciation for Chobu village and Chinese (Mandarin) pronounciation for Baisha and Bailu though.

Is there a reason in the game for Japanese pronunciation? Does it mean something? Guess, in the end it doesn't mean anything though. :D

I put Choubu into Google translate, going from Chinese to English, and tried to cross-reference it...thank you for the heads up. Didn't know about the Japanese thing. Perhaps Choubu, a made up place, is a blend of several diferent places into one.

I think Choubu is a Japanese pronounciation for the characters I mentioned above. The characters you used do indeed read chou bu in Chinese (meaning something like silk fabric) but are not the ones used in the video.

The girl in the first picture is probably someone else then Shenmue. I'd say it's Xiuying because he talks about her a lot too. Could be Niao-Sun too, considering that cleavage...

Yes! I think we're getting a good idea of how Choubu will be laid out initially. Seems to match (from another angle) the concept art:

New concept art for a hostel in Choubu. Is it just me or there's an overwhelming sense of nostalgia thinking of the Free Stay Lodge in Shenmue 2?

Funky business or not, looks like you're not far off the mark. :) Written on the art itself is "Ryo's room, Choubu hostel".
